THE MOVIE

I admit, I had my problems with this movie. IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS starts out slow, REAL slow. Many Carpenter movies do, but this one particularly, and I must say the movie lost me between Sam Neill's character being hired by Charlton Heston's character to investigate the disappearance of a famous author and the car ride to Hobb's End.
There however the story begins to unfold brilliantly. John Trent's gradual descent into madness is well executed and believable. The boundary between reality and fiction begins to fade and once the end credits roll you are left with a very satisfying movie experience that will occupy your mind for a while after.
The direction is good, some scenes could have been paced better, especially in the first third of the movie, but overall a job well done.
The star ensemble do a fine job as well: Sam Neill, Jurgen Prochnow, David Warner, Julie Carmen and Charlton Heston.
If you are a fan of the works of H. P. Lovecraft, you will very much appreciate screenwriter Michael De Luca's references to Lovecraft's works throughout the film.
Not a brilliant movie and not Carpenter's best work, but a very well done psychological thriller nontheless.

Sutter Cane is a phenomenally best-selling horror writer with hundreds of millions of fans worldwide who, according to media tales, are so affected by his writing that some of them are beginning to descend into a kind of madness.

When Cane suddenly vanishes, just after the submission deadline for his next bestseller, an investigator is hired by the publisher to find him and bring back Cane's completed manuscript for publication - millions of dollars' worth of sales are counting on it.

The investigator follows a hunch that Cane is living in the town referred to in his horror novels, and arrives there with one of the publisher's reps.

However after experiences in the town gradually get stranger and stranger, it appears that they have walked in to a Cane's final horror story - and with Cane having written them it, it is down to the twisted genius whether or not they - and indeed the rest of the world - survive.

A classic John Carpenter film that seems to pull some unusually good acting even out of the likes of Sam Neill and Charlton Heston, as well as its interesting premise this film has some genuinely creepy moments.

A homage to Lovecraft, as well as the blatant Lovecraftian hordes of chaos towards the end there are some nice touches - the hotel receptionist being called Mrs Pickman for example, a reference to Lovecraft's Pickman's Model, a similar tale of a piece of art becoming reality.

Wonderful, imaginative, full-on fantasy horror, with a typically Lovecraftian ending of futility and insanity.

This has to be one of JOHN CARPENTERS best movies and one of his most underrated movies.The story i wont say to much about but will say an author goes missing and SAM NEIL is sent to find him by CHARLTON HESTON and along the way very strange things start to happen were he is left wondering is it real or is he going mad.SAM NEIL is very good in this movie and is given one or two comic lines which he does very well.This disc has a very nice widescreen print the col is nice and rich with a very nice sharp picture and clear sound.This disc has the movie on UNCUT and has parts never seen in the UK before.On the extra side we get the trailer for the movie.So to sum up if you like JOHN CARPENTER movies this is for you plus its the first time you can see it UNCUT

I remember seeing this film on BBC2 years ago when I was a little kid and I've always wanted to see it again but could never find it anywhere. I have no idea why it isn't in production in the U.K but I'm glad I was able to get hold of this all region DVD, it works no problem. It arrived within two days of placing the order.

The plot centres around Sam Neill who is an insurance investigator, he is sent by a publishing company to track down their biggest selling horror writer who has gone missing. He tracks him to a small town called Hobbs End and ... well I dont want to give it away, lets just say that it gets interesting.

It scared the hell out of me when I was a kid and it did a pretty good job of it now I'm an adult. Ha. It has some great moments of creepiness while they're driving and its got plenty of the Carpenter gore that we all love. All in all 5/5.

For too many years the horror genre has been stuck in the doldrums and the formulaic trash that is spun out year after year - particularly the slasher films - are a cynical safe bet for producers who simply do the maths and churn out sequels and overused plots to make a calculated profit. In The Mouth Of Madness is refreshingly different and tells the tale of Sutter Cane, horror novelist whose books have a troubling effects on his readers. A homage to Lovecraft and some fine twists at the end, the movie is well-paced and on a higher level than some of the stuff Hollywood have distributed, nicely-packaged, from their old factory conveyor belt. Top marks for originality.
